LCHC Welcomes Dr. Casey Joe, Surgeon, To Their Medical Team

Lucas County Health Center is thrilled to announce the addition of Dr. Casey Joe, general surgeon, to our medical team. Having completed a comprehensive and demanding training path, Dr. Joe brings experience and commitment to her surgical care.

Dr. Joe’s journey in medicine began with a Bachelor’s degree in Forensic Science from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. She then pursued her Doctor of Medicine degree from the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine. Her medical education was followed by a rigorous five-year surgery residency at the BronxCare Health System in New York, completed in 2023. This ACGME-accredited program provided Dr. Joe with extensive hands-on experience in a wide range of surgical procedures and patient care scenarios.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Dr. Joe to our team,” said Brian Sims, Chief Executive Officer at Lucas County Health Center. “Dr. Joe’s extensive training and diverse background in surgery, combined with her passion for patient care, make her a perfect fit for our community. We are confident that she will greatly enhance the quality of care we provide and significantly improve the patient experience.”

Although Dr. Joe has moved frequently throughout her life, she considers New York her home. However, she is excited to bring her expertise to Iowa and is already enjoying the calmer lifestyle it offers. The peaceful surroundings and tight-knit community provide a refreshing contrast to the hustle and bustle of New York, allowing her to focus on her patients and personal well-being.

At Lucas County Health Center, Dr. Joe will be offering a wide range of surgical services, including laparoscopic hernia repairs, colonoscopies, EGDs, skin lesions and grafts, appendectomies, breast biopsies, and much more. She is excited to join the team at Lucas County Health Center and looks forward to contributing to the health and well-being of the community.
